Description

Unveiling Vazha Pshavela A dozen poems by Vazha, with stories and artworks inspired by him Manana Antelidze Ana Kordzaia-Samadashvili Andro Semeiko Leonid Semeiko Translated by Donald Rayfield “Unveiling Vazha Pshavela” is initiated by the artist Andro Semeiko and is exploring notions of self and motherland - through landscape, ethnography, and ideas and language of the Georgian poet Vazha Pshavela, who lived at the turn of the 20th century. The book includes three epic poems and nine shorter lyrics by the poet translated by Donald Rayfield OBE. The shorter poems are published in English for the first time. The book contains specially commissioned works by the writer Ana Kordzaia-Samadashvili, the fashion designer Manana Antelidze, and the artist Leonid Semeiko, which are published together with Andro Semeiko’s artworks. The book is the most comprehensive publication to date of Vazha Pshavela’s poems in English. The selection of the poems in the book illustrates the development of the poet’s humanist ideas and approach to nature that are relevant to ecology and social democracy in the world today. They are accompanied by an introduction by Donald Rayfield, which, together with the works by the others involved, offers several angles for a vision of the poet’s work - bridging his ideas with the present time.
